I'm sitting here trying to type up this post for you and all the clever, insightful things I was going to say have left my brain and what's replaced them is the sound of my nerves shattering into a fazillion child-shaped pieces.
I don't know if it's the full moon or if they've been smoking crack but my onions have gone bonkers and I'm seriously considering hog-tying them and shoving them under their beds until tomorrow morning.
Oh wait, things might be looking up... Husband seems to have lost it too and just announced that he's "laying down the hammer" and if anybody gets out of bed and comes downstairs mom might have a stroke and "do you want to kill Mom?!"
HAHA!!! Get 'em, Husband! You big sexy Canadian!
But now everybody's crying.
And they prolly think I'm going die.
Maybe that's not the best approach.
But they can wait a minute while I finish this. So long as I don't actually die between now and when I get upstairs and put an end to this craziness, I'm pretty sure no one is going to be psychologically damaged. At least not permanently.
OK, where were we? Oh, yeah. The dip! After I drooled all over Bakeaholic Mama's S'mores Crack Dip, I got to thinking... you could totally make other sweet dips and serve them with graham crackers! I've got several others I've been thinking about doing too - stay tuned for those soon! Update: See the Coconut Cream Pie Dip and Peanut Butter Cream Pie Dip too!
Key Lime Pie Dip
1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 8-oz. block cream cheese, at room temperature
2/3 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon lime zest
1 cup powdered sugar
1 8-oz. tub cool whip, thawed
Graham crackers for dipping
Combine sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add lime juice, zest and powdered sugar and mix until blended. Fold in cool whip and mix until just combined.
Add mixture to a serving bowl and refrigerate 6-8 hours. Garnish with a slice of lime if desired.
Serve with graham crackers.
You can totally use the dip as pie filling. This recipe will easily fill two standard graham cracker pie crusts.
